Speaker Lineup

Panelist and Speaker

Name:
Megan Grassell

Title:
Founder/CEO - Yellowberry

Why Megan?

Megan started Yellowberry when she was 17 years old, a junior in high school. She took her sister shopping to buy her first bra, and was shocked that everything for her and girls her age was incredibly overly-sexualized. She had the idea to build a brand that would create bras for girls in fun colors and styles while also being age- appropriate. Seven years later, she is now a multi million dollar company that has expanded to make bras, underwear, lounge and activewear for girls 8-15 across the country and globe!

She was named to TIME’s list of Most Influential Teens, a Forbes 30 Under 30, and was even featured on the TODAY Show, GMA, NYTimes, Fortune, Fast Company, and more. Best of all, she was born and raised in our great state of Wyoming.

And, she can't wait to...

talk about how she started Yellowberry. Everything from the initial idea, building a website and prototypes to finding a factory and launching. Then, her experience in building her own team, scaling a company, raising funds, working with nationwide partners, etc. And doing all of this as a young woman with no prior experience brings up its own set of challenges.
